Twenty-three: Just beginning to live life

I may look like I’ve always known what I wanted to do with my life, but I didn’t.  Up until last year I felt lost, and I was mad at myself for not knowing what direction I wanted to head in.  At twenty-three, I became drawn to nursing.  When I was unsure of what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, my father would continually express his unhappiness.  I started to feel bad and get down on myself for not becoming what my father had always wanted.  I soon realized that you can’t live your life to make other people happy, you need to make yourself happy above all else.  When I came to the realization that I would never truly be happy living the way my father wanted me to, I felt free.  All of a sudden this giant burden was lifted off my shoulders, and realized I could finally begin to live my life; my way.  Before I took charge of my education, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.  The only thing I knew for certain was that I wanted it to be my choice.  For some reason at twenty-three it all clicked one day, and I realized my true calling; nursing.  I went to college in Maryland and had obtained a business degree, and yet I felt like I still didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.  I’ve changed my course of study, and I couldn’t be happier.  Now I am living my life my way, and it feels amazing.
